There's a highly amusing article at Red State today about a lying Dem named Pramila Jayapal:
Jayapal tested positive--whatever that means--yesterday. She quickly blamed her positive test result on nasty GOPers:
I just received a positive COVID-19 test result after being locked down in a secured room at the Capitol where several Republicans not only cruelly refused to wear a mask but recklessly mocked colleagues and staff who offered them one.
Problem: There is video of Jayapal during the lockdown, and she's not wearing a mask. Even though someone next to her puts a mask on. Woops!

Yeah, that's her.
“Unfortunately, I received a positive COVID-19 test this morning following being tested yesterday on the advice of the House Attending Physician.
“Last Wednesday, after narrowly escaping a violent mob incited by the President of the United States to attack the Capitol and its occupants, I was forced to spend several hours in a secure but confined location with dozens of other Members of Congress. Several Republican lawmakers in the room adamantly refused to wear a mask, as demonstrated in video from Punchbowl News, even when politely asked by their colleagues. Today, I am now in strict isolation, worried that I have risked my wife’s health and angry at the selfishness and arrogance of the anti-maskers who put their own contempt and disregard for decency ahead of the health and safety of their colleagues and our staff. I am at least the third Member from that room paying the price, including Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, a 75-year-old cancer survivor.
“Wearing a mask is not a political statement, it is public health guidance, common courtesy, and simply what should be expected of all decent people.
“We can no longer tolerate Members coming to the floor or gathering in the halls of Congress without doing the bare minimum to protect those around them. Those that flout public health guidance should be sanctioned and immediately removed from the House floor by the Sergeant at Arms for their reckless endangerment of their colleagues.
Here's the interesting part. Schneider received the first dose of the vaccine on January 4.
There seems to be a lot of this going around. Lying. But also people taking the vaccine and then getting the disease. Schneider claims he has no symptoms, but one wonders: Why would you take a test shortly after getting the vaccine? That makes no sense at all, unless you have symptoms. Or unless you're part of a political stunt.
